Recently I read "The Five People You Meet in Heaven" by Mitch Albom. Opened the first page and could not put the book even for a minute. It is neither a mystery nor an adventure. Yet, it holds our attention till the end.
It is the story of an old person who dies while trying to save a little girl at an amusement park. The story is about the five people he meets in heaven, after his death. These are the five persons who were responsible for the turning points in his life....
Simplicity is the word to describe this book.
My sister, who does not read anything but adventures and mysteries, finished this book in a single go, in 5 hours. :-)
